Attn: Garrett Kellams - Re: OWNER REVIEW Cabela's Alaskan Guide Frame Pack
- Welcome to BackpackGearTest.org Garrett.
Thank you for your Owner Review and your interest in becoming a tester. Unfortunately, as it stands now you do not meet our minimum number of day/nights in the field with this piece of gear. We strongly encourage new writers to write about, A. a simple piece of gear and B. and item with which you have lots of trail time. By lots we mean a season or more involving several days/nights in the field. Please shelve this report for now and after you've had more time "out" with it you can decide if you want to re-post it.
It is not uncommon for new writers to need a bit more help before their first OR is ready for the editing process. Are you aware we have a Mentoring Program This program teams new reviewers with experienced veterans to help get them through their first review(s). If you'd like more assistance or guidance with the process you can request a mentor by sending an email to Mentor(at)backpackgeartest.org - Please use MENTOR REQUEST in the subject line.
You can also take a second look at our Owner Review requirements spelled out in the How to Become a Tester section of our webpage (link below). In addition to this material we suggest reading some recently approved owner reviews to get a feel for what the BGT standards are.
Regardless of which option you take, we certainly hope you will give it another go. Our standards are high but that benefits us all. We look forward to seeing your review again in the near future.
